4.25/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Aged for about a year;

A: slight haze; bronze in color; with a fairly aggressive pour, a 2 finger ivory head that receded to a wispy cap; light lacing;

S: well balanced clove and banana with the oak noticeable as well;

T: the oak is a big part of the flavor, dominating everything else from start to finish; the banana and clove are most noticeable in the middle, while there is some tropical fruit toward the end; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; highly carbonated; dry finish; hides the ABV well;

O: really nice:

Out of the three in this Barrelhouse Collection, this was the least disappointing. Not at all what I expected.

A 1pt 9.4 fl oz corked and caged bottle with a best before date of 1st February 2018. Poured into a Chimay goblet glass.

Appearance: A clear dark copper orange colour with a slightly less than two finger off white head that had great retention, eventually settling down to a nice creamy layer, while leaving great curtain like lacing.

Aroma: Belgian yeast, banana, clove, honey and pear with hints of spice.

Taste: Some light banana and clove at the beginning, followed by spice, candi sugar, orange and pineapple with quite a strong hit of alcohol on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: It looks great, and smells nice, but the strong alcohol on the finish was quite harsh in my opinion.

Really good triple with notes of spice, sweet and zen good vibes--- bravo!! Puts copper amber hue with lacey small head that fades fast. Nice tight carbonization.

Picked up a 750ml caged and corked bottle from TW Arrowhead in late July for $9.99.

Beer poured golden with a beautiful white head that has some excellent hang time.

Nose is apple and pear, very nice.

Taste is apple and pear with a nice pepper finish.

Mouthfeel is excellent, classic Belgian smoothness rules making every sip finish with near perfection.

Overall this is a surprisingly excellent beer. Definitely on par with the better Belgians Tripel versions!
